Green Tara is considered one of the most accessible Bodhisattva. Her right foot comes off her lotus as if to say – “Need help, I’m on my way”. Green Tara is the embodiment of Wisdom and Compassion and as such is known as the female Buddha. She is known as Dolma, she who saves or ferries across. She is said to protect her followers from fear and remove obstacles in one’s endeavors. Here she is in a Hawaiian setting with a Pueo, Hawaiian Owl to the left and a small i’ili bird to the right.
Tara’s mantra is: Om Tare Tu Tare Ture Svaha
